Pat-a-cake Pat-a-cake Baker Days


Eating cake is definitely one of my favourite things in the whole wide world but sadly I’m no GBBO Star Baker.  Whilst looking for a birthday cake for the Jay bird who turns 1 next month my attention was brought to Baker Days by the lovely Beth at

To my great surprise the team at Baker Days asked whether I would like to review a Mother’s Day Letterbox cake. This instantly appealed to my tastebuds so it was a resounding yes!


When the delivery arrived I had no idea that I was opening the Letterbox size cake cleverly disguised in a box that slipped right through the er… letterbox. My first impression was what a lovely surprise and then I thought you wouldn’t need to be in to take delivery of the cake.  I like this quirky no fuss concept of having a tasty fun gift delivered via post. The dimensions were 3-4 portions being a 5 inch cake (12cm x 2.5cm) suitable for 2 people or for 1 if you’re mad about cake!


The cake was protected inside the lovely cake tin and mine was personalised. I chose a photo of Jay and I when he was 4 months old, I did feel guilty cutting into the cake but the guilt quickly passed!


Prices start from £14.99 including delivery, which is a tad more than I would normally pay for the size of the cake but then it was simply delicious and I couldn’t fault the presentation.


I would recommend using Baker Days as there are so many designs (500 to be exact) to choose from and ways to personalise a cake for pretty much any occasion. Dietary requirements such as gluten wheat free or dairy free cakes are catered for. They also do yummy Cupcakes and if you order before 2pm they can deliver the next working day.

Sometimes you can’t always be there to share a special occasion with a friend or loved one.  This is a unique way of showing them that you’re thinking of them. Mother’s Day is around the corner (wink wink).

Thanks for reading!
